Many people predicted it, but few truly expected it to shine the way it did. Within 3 short minutes, Nintendo revealed the much anticipated NX, now known as the Nintendo Switch, and got all of us excited for the future of gaming all over again. Playstation VR be damned!
With the release slated for just a few months away in March, you can bet your sweet asses that I’m holding back on virtual reality for a while longer. I had spoken to friends about not wanting to jump on the Playstation VR bandwagon for a while longer to see how it evolves (and the likely hood that there will be a better model released later next year is high) and I am very glad I chose to do so. With the new Zelda title on the same horizon as the Switch, there will be a day marked on my calendar dedicated to snatching Nintendo’s new console up for myself, no questions asked. It’s not often I rush out to buy a new system, the last time being for the Wii and Twilight Princess.
My biggest wish for this system so far is for their list of third party developers to stick true. I am not ashamed to admit that I squealed like a piggy when Skyrim was shown on the Switch screen, and I think Nintendo really needs more outside development to make this system rise high above their previous consoles.
Also, can we all just take a moment to appreciate these adorable baby game cards:
They are so tiny and perfect and cute and I just can’t!!!!! Even!!!! Handle it!!!!!
Anyway, the Nintendo Switch looks great and I can’t wait to hear more about it! Perhaps we will get more information during the holiday Nintendo Direct? Or hopefully a Direct dedicated just to the new system!
